As I work recently teaching German Language to Georgian schoolkids I am connected to every-day-life really every day. Here are some observations: Georgian youngsters giving plenty of hope for the future. They are smart, agile, talented, fresh and visionary. Most of them want to become successful businessmen. But don't forget the girls, they too want in the business or going for law, medicine, computer science. Most of them have E-mail and use the Internet daily. After school it's normal to attend extra lessons in the most important subjects with private teachers. A lot of them do dancing, traditional, modern and mixed. Some boys are very active in the sports like Rugby or Water polo or Karate. Cell phones are tools of communication, chatting with friends, or answer calls by mom and dad. Some of their phones have the camera function or one can use them as voice recorders. I asked once or twice about the price of these nice tools and they told me cold-blooded prices of USD 600 and more. (I use a geriatric phone for under USD 100). In the classes seems to be no rivalry of fashionable wear, like that is a big problem in Germany, but yes, they do compare their cell phones. Quite a lot of girls start smoking secretly quite early, in a lesser case the boys. Boys are cool these days when wearing longer hair, down to the shoulders and almost everybody wears necklaces with silver or wooden crosses. The Georgian skills for learning languages are amazing, they learn fast and many speak after a couple of years with few or without foreign accent. English and German are about even popular and to know a basic Russian is quite normal.
